Recent experiments and analyses have provided greater understanding of friction losses for the size distribution of the particles forming the slurry. Wilson & Sellgren (2001), Wilson et al. (2006) and Sellgren & Wilson (2006) have proposed a multi-component model consisting of carrier fluid and pseudo-homogeneous, heterogeneous and fully-stratified solids. The technique presented here was found to estimate friction losses well when compared to reported experimental results with pipelines with diameters mainly from 0.2 to 0.5m for various mixtures of fine sand to coarse gravel and products from mineral processing and phosphate mining.
